You can get to know  your Smart Accessories through this video or check out the below for further details on your SmartCuff™.

The SmartCuff™ is an inclusive accessory with your ALEX PCS and is the device you’ll be using for blood pressure measurements. 

It works with a blood pressure sensor which is either a little red box, or a little black box attached to your accessory and it works with batteries.

You’ll need 3V CR1632 batteries for a SmartCuff™ with a red sensor and 3V CR2032 batteries for a SmartCuff™ with a black sensor.

Once ALEX PCS is online and running a session,  use the SmartCuff™ with ALEX just as you would use a 'normal blood pressure meter' or sphygmomanometer on real patients.

The SmartCuff™ will switch on automatically when you inflate the cuff, and will switch off automatically after about 5 minutes of inactivity.
